Lisa Rubenstein Calevi: The Jewish History of Venice
This is a past event. Wednesday, January 9 at 12:00pm 1:00pm
Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education 724 N.W. Davis St., Portland, OR
At this brown bag lunch event, Lisa Rubenstein Calevi will discuss the Jewish history of Venice—from the ghetto founding in 1516 to a modern-day community now facing unique and potentially divisive challenges, in an illustrated lecture titled Shylock's Venice: The Cultural, Historic and Artistic Traditions of the First Jewish Ghetto.
Bring a lunch or buy a brown bag lunch in Lefty's Cafe at the Oregon Jewish Museum and join a lively lunchtime conversation.
